Make Sundays Special, Bristol

Bristol has recently been declared the 'best city to live in the UK'. And more and more I find myself falling in love with this bohemian dream of a place. 

Take this Sunday for instance. It was Make Sundays Special in the centre of town. The main street into the Old City closes to vehicles, armchairs are plonked on street corners, children are invited to get creative in the pedestrianised spaces and eccentric street entertainment is in its element; out in full force.

This Sunday I watched a man juggle fire, saw a polar bear boogying to Herbie Hancock's jazz standard Chameleon and bathed in the happy atmosphere of people keeping their Sunday sacred with good friends, good food, some music and the fresh air.

When Bristol hosted its first Make Sundays Special, it was the first ever British city to ban traffic from the city centre. This is a special place. And once again I find myself feeling lucky to be part of it all.
